The Society of Classical Poets is bringing beauty and hope to mankind through the very best and most foundational genre of English literature: classical poetry. We need your help to reach more people and ensure that this rich art form, along with our civilization, continue to flourish.

The Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization so your donation is tax deductible in the United States. Please include your mailing address in the notes section of the payment so that you can be mailed your free journal (for donations of $100 or more) and relevant tax document. Your donation will go toward the Society’s mission of promoting poetry that rhymes and/or has meter and is of good character. The Society also supports educational initiatives that benefit schools throughout the English-speaking world.
